President Obama is extremely unpopular right now. The Democrat-dominated congress has the lowest approval rating in decades. And millions of bitter-clingers are attending Tea Party rallies to eagerly support candidates that will oppose the Progressive agenda.
In short, the question is not will the Democrats be solidly defeated in this week’s upcoming election, but how bad will it be?
Well, thanks to the typical efforts of Leftists to manipulate the vote, it won’t be as bad as it should be. With advance voting taking off this year, voter fraud has already become evident. Read the rest of this entry »
Given the recent fuss over the blame game in the media regarding politically motivated violence, John Hawkins from Right Wing News has written an article for Townhall covering five big names on the left — organizations and people — that have committed (or attempted to commit) acts of politically motivated violence, but have been largely ignored by the mainstream media.

The arrest of Jihad Jane was big news. Now there’s more on some of the other people involved in the plot to murder Swedish cartoonist Lars Vilks. A woman from Colorado, Jamie Paulin-Ramirez, was one of those arrested in Ireland in connection with the Vilks plot. Paulin-Ramirez apparently recently converted to Islam and went to New York to marry a Muslim man she met online. The pair were part of a group of people arrested in Ireland in connection to the Jihad Jane murder plot.
There seems to be a common thread Between Paulin-Ramirez and LaRose. Both women seemed to be lonely, unable to maintain stable relationships, and eager to connect to someone or something that promised them purpose. Islam is a very elegant religion, and it would be very easy for someone seeking to use Islam to recruit people to terrorism to convert women like these.
Robert Stacy McCain comments on the story, mentioning the lonely hearts aspect of the case. Perhaps by the end of her fourth marriage Paulin-Ramirez was getting desparate?
The Lonely Conservative also comments, focusing instead on the fact that Paulin-Ramirez has a young son who was given a Muslim name and dragegd along to Ireland for the ride.

After a nutjob flew a plane into an IRS building in Austin, Texas, the Left immediately blamed conservatives and “teabaggers” for formenting anti-government fervor and driving Andrew Joseph Stack to crashing his plane as an act of defiance against the government. In doing so, they ignored the ramblings of his suicide note, which decried the lack of health care reform, demonized the Catholic Church, banks, and George W. Bush, and slammed capitalism as greedy. In short, he was way too far to the left to be a Tea Partier, and was way to crazy to belong solidly to any political ideology. Read the rest of this entry »
